If you want to use Trustly logos in your marketing materials or on the checkout page, please use official guidelines from Trustly. Trustly’s design guidelines has different logo formats and designs which can be used in your materials.

Step 1. Make a transaction request

From your server, make a POST /payment_preauthorize request.

POST https://sandbox.payabl.com/pay/backoffice/payment_preauthorize

Include in request:

  • merchantid: The merchant identification number.
  • orderid: The field orderid is optional and exclusively for the merchants convenience.
  • amount: The amount field contains the transaction’s total amount. This is the amount that will be transmitted to the authorizing system.
  • currency: The currency field contains the alphanumeric currency code for the transaction, according to ISO 4217, e.g. EUR, USD, AUD, CAD, NOK, SEK, CHF.
  • payment_method: The payment method id - 116.
  • signature: The signature field contains a 40-figure hexadecimal value. This signature value is a checksum designed to protect the merchant account from unauthorized access.
  • language: This parameter determines the language in which Trustly pages will be shown
    valid values: da de en es et fi fr lt lv nl no pl ru sk sv.
  • country: Customer country in ISO Alpha-3 format. Supported countries: AUT, BEL, CZE, DEU, DNK, EST, ESP, FIN, GBR, LTU, LVA, NLD, NOR, POL, SWE, SVK.
  • email: The customer's email address.
  • url_success: Success transaction URL
  • url_failed: Failed transaction URL
    You can see a full list of parameters in Pre-Authorization.


Redirection to url_return does not confirm that the transaction is successful. Always check the transaction via notification_url or use diagnose interface to get the final status of the transaction.

Request example


Step 2. Handle the redirect

To complete the payment, you need to redirect the customer to the correct URL in the response.

Response example


After the client completed payment on the Trustly side, he will be redirected back to your url_return.
Additionally, you will get a notification to provided notification_url, which should be used to update statuses in your system.

Notification example

errorcode=0&orderid=743222831" "https://www.notification_url"

When the customer finished or canceled the payment, he will be redirected back to url_return, provided by you in the initial request to payment_preauthorize. After that, you will receive a notification, posted to notification_url, with the final transaction status, which you suppose to use to update your system.

Notification URL can be configured by our tech support team in your account on our side,
or you can send it as a parameter notification_url in the initial request to payment_preauthorize.


url_return and notification_url should be provided by you to payabl. technical team.

Notification example with additional account parameters.

security=19667fb6d9d2f3c8457e29d949f72319a9986b88b0be47050d9fc49f746d279b&orderid=6eebd443fb407e3f35f0&errorcode=0" "https://www.notification_url"


Trustly supports refunds and can be initiated only on a successful captured transaction.
The request will send a credit note to the authorization system after the customer has already been charged. The refund amount will be credited to the customer and the merchant’s account will be charged.

The refund can be done in two ways:

  • Through API integration
  • Through payabl. dashboard

If you have API integration, you can check more in our documentation Refund.


Trustly payout allows merchants to send funds to any bank account from listed countries via wire transfer. This can be done for customers who already have a deposit through the Trustly system or when the merchant has the bank details of the customer.

This is a server-to-server API request with no callbacks/webhooks.

POST https://sandbox.powercash21.com/pay/backoffice/payment_cft

The payout request through Trustly can be done in two ways:

  • Payout based on an existing transaction
  • New account details.

Based on an existing transaction

Merchant can choose an existing successful deposit or CFT transaction ID to automatically extract the account details for payouts.

Request example


After you send a payout request, the system will validate your current balance. If your balance is sufficient then the transaction will be sent to Trustly for processing.

payabl. will send you a response letting you know if the payout was successful or not.

Response example


New account details

Merchant (non-gambling) can also send funds to accounts of customers that do not have an associated transaction id. For this, the account details need to be sent via API. Please pay attention to the country list table for information on the formatting of the account number field as it can contain IBANs.

  • accountnumber: IBAN or bank account number.
  • banknumber: This parameter is an option if IBAN is sent.
  • bankcountry: 2 digit ISO country code of the recipient’s bank. Please check the table below for support countries.
  • email: The customer's email.
  • birthday: The customer's date of birth.

Request example


payabl. will send you a response.

Response example


Failed payouts

In case an error occurs when processing the payout, a notification will be sent to the provided Notification URL so that you can flag the payout as failed in your system. Note that the notification will be sent AFTER the synchronous response has been sent.

There are 2 main reasons why a payout can fail after the response has been sent:

  1. There are not enough funds on the merchant’s account. In this case, the notification will be sent immediately after the payout request has been received.
  2. The funds are sent to the end user’s bank account, but then later Trustly is notified by the bank that the transfer failed, for example, if the recipient’s bank account has been closed. This is usually very uncommon, but if it happens the notification can be sent several days after the payout request was sent.

Sample failed notification:
